Venkman Stantz Spengler Paranormal Studies

I was checking out the latest offering from UK based Last Exit To Nowhere and stumbled upon an excellent Ghostbusters themed T-Shirt. Last Exit To Nowhere did not go the traditional “cartoony” route, like this Threadless T-Shirt, instead, they went sophisticated. Venkman Stantz Spengler Paranormal Studies features not only great typography but also has green glow in the dark ink, something that the die hard fans of Ghostbusters can appreciate.

Inspired by the Columbia University Paranormal Studies team in the first part of the film Ghost Busters. (The reason Ernie Hudson’s character Winston Zeddemore isn’t featured in this particular design is because he joined the team after they had left University when Ghost Busters was already established).

Venkman Stantz Spengler Paranormal Studies is available now from Last Exit To Nowhere for £18 ($28).

Andy Vs. Apple

A few months ago I featured Exploded Andy, a shirt from the guys that brought us some of my favorite Exploded tees, including Exploded 128, Exploded Phone and iSteamMac. After a string of Apple centric T-Shirts we now get two Android happy shirts in a row! What is an Apple fanboy like me to do about this?!

Of course, spin it and interpret it as only an Apple mega fan could! And it is for that reason that I actually really enjoy this shirt, which was designed by illustrator Chris Bishop.

Some might see this shirt as a pro Android tee. You might see Andy breaking loose and attacking the Apple way. Not me. No way! To me, Andy, that green Andoid character is much like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man character from Ghostbusters. Big, fat, and slow. Sound familiar? If so, because those are all characters that both the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and the Android OS and its various handsets have in common. Think Droid X. Big and slow. Yuck.

And at the end of the day, what happened to the Stay Puft Mashmallow Man? He died a horrible death. Apple might not have proton packs to destroy big and fat Andy, but what they do have is even better. It’s called Rabid Apple Fans. Myself included.

To me, I see here Apple fighting quite valiantly. They are the good guys. They are fighting the big battle against the fat and ugly Marshmallow known as Andy.  Fight that fight, Apple. Keep on fighting.

Andy Vs. Apple is available now in T-Shirt and poster form. Both the T-Shirt and posters are priced at $19 a piece.

Scott Pilgrim Custom Printing Press at Comic-Con 2010

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is billed as being “an epic of epic epicness” and I believe that to be the truth. I’m excited for this film, not only because the comic was awesome but because Michael Cera is the perfect actor to play Scott Pilgrim. It seems as if Cera’s found a little niche for himself in Hollywood playing adolescents with issues. Needless to say, Cera is the perfect Pilgrim.

With Scott Pilgrim vs. the World set to premier on August 13, it is no surprise that they have invaded Comic-Con 2010. And what better way to promote the movie than to give away free Scott Pilgrim T-Shirt. And what’s even better than that? Setting up custom printing presses so that fans can come up, choose their T-Shirt color and then screen print their favorite Scott Pilgrim design. Very cool, highly interactive and definitely memorable!

From the looks of the images, there were five different, single color prints that you could choose from. Take a look below at all of the action that you probably missed out on! Jealous much?

Sunday (July 25, 2010): Cat-A-Tar. I really enjoyed Avatar, but in all seriousness, if the Avatars looks a bit like the Cat-a-tars below, I might have loved the movie that much more. Maybe. Now I’m thirsty for some milk!

Rocky’s Villains

First off, you should know that I am huge Rocky fan. My dad loves boxing, so growing up in the 80’s it was inevitable that I would watch the Rocky saga whenever humanly possibly. In fact, to this day, if Rocky is in marathon mode on either TNT or TBS, we watch it despite the fact that we own all of the movies on DVD.

And so it should be no surprise that I am quite fond of the latest Found Item Clothing original. It’s called Rocky’s Villains and is in the style of the popular Experimental Jetset tees. If this was any other tee, I’d probably hate the multi-colored typograhy. However, there is a reason to the colorful type madness and I can definitely appreciate it. If you’re confused then please refer to the photos below for reference.

Rocky’s Villains is printed on a white American Apparel T-Shirt and is now available from Found Item Clothing for $21.95.

This is How You Lego A Theadless T-Shirt

On a scale of 0 to 100, with o being radless to 100 being amazingly rad, this Threadless T-Shirt to Lego build conversion by Alex Eylar scores an astounding 100 on my radness scale. Alex took the recently released, Tetris themed T-Shirt, and “rebuilt” it using some oversized Lego’s. Alex originally posted the photo over on his Flickr page.

And here is the original Threadless T-Shirt, Let The Game Continue by Eduardo San Gil. Interstingly, the shirt which was just released last week Monday is no longer found in the Threadless catalog. And trying to access the direct link to the T-Shirt leads you right back to the Threadless catalog. Was the T-Shirt taken down because Nintendo complained? I wonder.

Slinky Heaven + M.C. Escher

I’m a sucker for a good M. C. Escher themed T-Shirt. And Slinky Heaven from Glennz Tees is a very good M. C. Escher themed T-Shirt. Of course, artist Glenn Jones added his own little spin the classic never ending Escher steps by adding none other than a slinky. Brilliant? Indeed.

Slinky Heaven is printed on a Silver American Apparel blank and is available now from Glennz Tees for $19.95.
